TEMPTATION BLOCKER

The season of Lent is upon us, which means a new opportunity for those who may have already failed to stick to their new year’s resolutions to start afresh and set themselves a revised list of lifestyle goals to keep to over the coming 40 days.

But as we once again start to think about curbing our shopping habits, watching less reality TV or eating less sugar, over a third of us say the internet can make these promises we’ve made to ourselves hard to keep.

With that in mind David Lloyd Clubs has introduced the Temptation Blocker – a innovative tool that lets you personalise your online world to match your new lifestyle goals, by blocking any content or vices you may have pledged to ban yourself from on your pathway to improved personal wellbeing.

Set those #goals – how to use Temptation Blocker

Temptation Blocker is compatible with both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Click on the relevant browser to download. Simply download the plug-in and select the tempting items you wish to rid from your digital world from five different categories.

  1. Help me stop spending money on...
  2. Help me stop being distracted by…
  3. Help me cut back on…
  4. Help me reduce my intake of…
  5. Help me avoid reading about…

For each section you can tick the particular vices you’ve pledged to give up for 2018: whether it’s ‘bread’, ‘takeaways’ or ‘chocolate’ for the intake section, ‘clothes’, ‘holidays’ or ‘make-up’ for the spending money category, ‘social media’, ‘reality TV’ or ‘football’ for the distracted section, or even Donald TrumpPiers Morgan or Kim Kardashian for the ‘avoid reading about’ category.

 Once the plug-in has been enabled, the moment you will try to search anything in Google related to one of their vices you’ve  given up, or attempt to access a URL featuring a blocked key-word, you will be greeted with a ‘temptation blocked’ pop-up, completely shielding the tempting content and helping you stay true to your new year goals.
